Become a great writer…Yes you can do it!

There is very little gap between good and great. The only thing which differentiates them is the thought process. Here are few tips which will help you improve and become great.

  • Read the good writers – As I have already emphasized the importance of reading in the last post, I do not need to say more on this point. Only thing to add is read the writer who inspires you the most.
  • Write and write – This is hard work. If you love writing, then do it as much as possible. Do not limit yourself, be free while writing. You will surely learn and grow.
  • Jot down the ideas – If you cannot write on the idea you are having currently, make sure to write it down. Keep a log of your ideas. This is how writers develop amazing skills.
  • Check what you have written – Always revisit and find out the mistakes. We are the best judge of what our writing is. So revise regularly.
  • Get feedback – Constant feedback helps you to improve your writing. If you can get the feedback from an established writer nothing like it!
  • Write like you are talking – Imagine yourself as talking while you write. The best writers are those who can converse well with the reader.

 

Can you actually be a writer?

If you have wanted to be a writer all your life, you have probably heard this from a number of people. The world of writing is rather competitive, and there is a statistical probability that you might not become the next Oscar Wilde. But that does not mean that you will not be able to make money out of your writing. That does not mean that you will not be widely read, either.

Every person has a story inside them, one that is waiting to burst out. Make sure you write that story. Write it with all your passion, make sure that you give it your all. Reach out to other writers, make sure you build connections with other writers and publishers. It is highly important for you to maintain the right kind of connections in any industry- the writing world included.

Don’t feel too scared of trying out other mediums of writing. There are a number of big writers who started out as newspaper writers, or even bloggers! Make use of any platform that helps you reach out to a wide base of readers- you never know how far that can take you.

Being a writer can be an uphill task, but like most uphill tasks, the reward waiting on top of the hill will be worth all the effort you are required to put into it.
